About the header image: July 30, 2014

Last October I decided to go out and photograph the sunset from the Nanticoke - West Nanticoke bridge over the Susquehanna River. The sunset was nothing spectacular, but I realized that Venus would be showing up low in the West as twilight turned to dusk. (It's visible in this image, though just barely - nearly dead center, to the left of the central vertical girder, to the right of the fourth rivet from the bottom in the big girder.) In trying to capture Venus, I accidentally captured something beautiful as the sodium vapor lights caused the white-painted girders to show up in a false deep rust color, in sharp contrast to the sunset colors of the sky.

If you have a photo you'd like to see used as the NEPA Blogs header, send it to us at Thanks!
